Adam Driver Talks About Killing Han Solo And May Have Revealed Spoiler About Rey’s Parents
Adam Driver gave an interview with British GQ for their December issue and some interesting tidbits were revealed. The Star Wars actor who portrays Kylo Ren talked about killing Han Solo in The Force Awakens and also may have spilled a spoiler about Rey’s parents that Daisy Ridley said we will definitely discover in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Driver instantly became a despised figure after Kylo Ren thrust his red lightsaber into the chest of his very own father, Han Solo. Driver described watching the moment in Episode VII when his character committed patricide during the premiere. “When I watched the premiere, I felt sick to my stomach… Immediately, I thought I was going to puke,” Driver told GQ. “I was holding my wife [Joanne Tucker]’s hand, and she’s like, ‘You’re really cold. Are you OK?’ Because I just knew what was coming – I kill Harrison Ford – and I didn’t know how this audience of 2,000 people was going to respond to it, you know?”
Driver may have also dropped a major spoiler about Rey’s parents that Star Wars fans have been wondering since The Last Jedi debuted nearly two years ago. “You have, also, the hidden identity of this princess who’s hiding who she really is so she can survive and Kylo Ren and her hiding behind these artifices,” Driver said. GQ adds, “Apparently dropping a massive revelation about Rey’s royal origins.”
